3:34 am
area for challengers. he's in the role that barack obama was in in 2008. mitt romney doesn't have any international experience. he can say he ran the olympics but that's the same when obama used to say i lived abroad. it's hard to find ways to critique the president and hope he can land some blows. >> 35 states plus d.c. have early voting. you have to wonder if that will make a difference in the election. what do you think in watching the debates, too? >> it's money in the bank. a place like ohio which is very key, early voter turnout has been up. most people have voted already. most people are already enthusiastic or not enthusiastic about whoever it is they are voting for. i don't think this debate will change anything but, again, if someone screws up, if someone doesn't seem enthusiastic, it could affect enthusiasm and that end up making a difference. >> definitely have to see how it turns out. jason johnson, thank you for coming in early as always. all right.

3:36 am
south of the dominican republic in haiti, south of cuba and jamaica could turn into a tropical system. where does it go from here? point this out quickly because, wref, you will see all the models trending to take this up to the north. heavy rain back on in towards the bahamas. something we're watching. it doesn't look like it will make it through the u.s. at this point but we're still going to keep our eyes out. back to the states, see the rain south of miami. that's where it will stay today. a strong east wind but look at that. out of the southwest a lot of warm air rising through kansas city. showers and thunderstorms early this morning. low level jet action so once that dies off this morning that will fall apart. the rain around des moines stretching into northern missouri. scattered pop-up lightning. you can see here, too, all moving up to the northeast. not severe right now but the rain will be back. you can see western texas. more showers are developing here. that's not severe either south of lubbock. lightning out of this. rain switching to all snow for

3:40 am
3:41 am
40 minutes past the hour. twitter, did you hear this, could help students bring their grades up. college students who tweet for class are more engaged and they end up doing better according to a new study done by a professor at michigan state who caught a class focused on tweeting. she said that twitter helped students in that class collaborate, write concisively and also talk directly to authors. twitter use among teens, by the way, in the u.s. has doubled in the last two years. they have to pay attention to the tweeting, don't they, if the class is on tweeting? >> you have to. and if you don't pay attention you don't look good, right? human beings like to look good. >> exactly. the government needs your brain power to stop those annoying recorded sales pitches that you get on your phone. if you have the solution, though, to robocalls, you could win $50,000. jennifer westhoven is here with
3:42 am
what you need to do. >> i love the story. first of all, we all know so many of the robocalls are technically illegal and yet for many people the phone keeps ringing and ringing. it won't stop. so what will you do about it? the government is saying let's try something fresh. let's get some new ideas and have this contest. so what they're doing is, if you have a solution that works and is simple, there's $50,000, a trip to washington, d.c. we have a link with how you can sign up at hlntv.com/robin. i love the idea of them using a contest to get ideas instead of some of the other ways. there have been a lot of studies that show when you do that, you can end up with very out of the box solutions, so to speak. i don't mean to use the phrase but suddenly you have people coming with all different ideas and you can get something that's very elegantly simple, let's say. all right. what if everything you wore, even the angle of your hat, every word out of your mouth, was dictated by your boss. a lawsuit says on the
3:43 am
